Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC)

Circumcision Section

The RHSP Circumcision Section comprises two major inter-connected arms :
- Circumcision Research Studies and Circumcision Service.
While research aims at informing policy, it also provides a platform to evaluate and improve service. Service on the other hand translates the policies arrived at into practice to benefit the served communities, country and region.

Our studies are categorized into Published, Completed, Ongoing, and Upcoming studies. RHSP’s Circumcision service arm comprises surgical camps, Satellite/Static clinics, Training, and Continuous Quality Improvement. The circumcision Services adhere to the Ugandan Ministry of Health policies, and Donor guidelines.

As a novel HIV prevention re-enforcing strategy, the WHO/UNAIDS set to achieve an 80% male circumcision prevalence target by circumcising 29.1 million men in Sub-Saharan Africa (Figure 1). In response, the Ugandan Ministry of Health adopted the ambitious goal for Uganda to perform at least 4.2 million adult & adolescent male circumcisions by end of 2016, starting in 2010, with a potential to avert 428,000 new HIV infections by 2025.

To effect this, implementing partners were mandated to provide technical oversight in scale up of the Safe Male Circumcision program to different regions of the country. RHSP was thus mandated to primarily oversee the service scale up in 10 districts of Central & South-western Uganda, in the context of District-led Programming.

Circumcision / Surgical Camps

RHSP primarily oversees circumcision camp activities in 10 Districts of Central/South-western Uganda. These include: Rakai, Lyantonde, Kalungu, Mpigi, Masaka, Lwengo, Bukomansimbi, Ssembabule, Gomba, and Kiruhura.

Circumcision camps tend yield high numbers in a limited period of time (10-14 days). The dorsal slit method is typically used, though device based circumcisions (such as the Prepex device) are available options for the clients
